Storyline

Israeli beauty queen Linor Abargil was abducted and raped in Milan, Italy two months before being crowned Miss World in 1998. Ten years later, she's ready to talk about it, and to encourage others to speak out. Now a globe-trotting victims' advocate, Linor encourages others to stand against sexual violence by putting an end to their silence. She travels to speak with teens in South Africa, where girls are statistically more likely to be raped than educated. For victims of sexual assault, the journey toward wholeness never ends; still, Linor Abargil, the BRAVE MISS WORLD, continues her unflinching efforts to keep the nightmares at bay.

making people aware of rape (no major spoiler)
6 July 2014 | by (the world) – See all my reviews

I just saw this documentary and it was touching. You realize how rape is being a taboo all over the world.

Because of Linor showing herself and her feelings in a very honest way you also see how much effect rape has on people.

The flow of the documentary was alright. In the beginning I was more captivated by it, after Linor took a break from shooting, the documentary became more distant.

All in all I love how this documentary makes rape a more open topic. For girls that have been assaulted I think this documentary will give them more strength to be open about it and to keep their heads up.
